WARNING: Our Night Sky Will Be Forever Ruined And Illuminated After July 14th – Here’s Why

Published

on

We as earthlings have always wondered about what’s going on out in the great wide universe. We guessed, and then we charted, and then we eventually started sending things out into space, outside earth’s atmosphere, in hopes of learning more about the unknown universe, and we have learned a lot. The technology that is orbiting the earth has given us handy things like GPS and all sorts of other things that big brother no doubt uses to spy on us.

There’s even an American flag planted on the moon now because of this exploration (unless you believe the moon landing was faked, in which case there’s an extra flag planted somewhere in the New Mexico/Arizona area). And while we won that race, the issues of earth were more or less unchanged. Countries still war and technology still surges ahead.

One country that the United States has a long history of dissidence with is the same one that almost beat us to the moon. As if we weren’t having enough problems with Russia, they’ve now decided to launch their own technology into space that will no doubt mar the experience of stargazing for the entire planet. If you love looking at the sky, stock up now, because in the middle of next month Russia will be putting its own satellite that will be shining brightly.

Via Daily Mail:

“Russian scientists working on the Mayak satellite – which is set to be the brightest ‘star’ in the night sky – have announced that it is nearing completion.

Engineers have crowd-funded around $20,000 (£15,400), which is enough to build and test the satellite which is due to be launched in a fortnight.
Its designers say it could be used to combat space junk by using a parachute-like structure to lower the orbits of debris so they can burn up in Earth’s atmosphere.

However, some astronomers have slammed the creation, which is no larger than a rugby ball, calling it a ‘nonsense’ project that could ‘ruin’ dark skies for everyone.

Called the ‘Mayak’ or ‘Beacon’, the satellite is set to outshine everything in the sky, apart from the sun, thanks to a giant reflective sheet of material.

The controversial satellite is due to be launched from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan on Friday 14 July.
Its the work of engineers from the University of Mechanical Engineering in Moscow.

‘We fight so hard for dark skies in and around our planet,’ Nick Howes, an astronomer and former deputy director of the Kielder Observatory in Northumberland, told IFLScience.

‘To see this being potentially ruined by some ridiculous crowdfunded nonsense makes my heart simply despair.’

The launch of Mayak is expected to be taken up in a Soyuz 2 rocket, with help from Roscosmos, the Russian space agency.

The team is planning to place the spacecraft in a sun-synchronous orbit 370 miles (600km) above the ground.

This means it will always be in the path of sunlight, so will always be shining at different locations on Earth as it rotates.

The small spacecraft will launch a giant pyramid-shaped solar reflector in orbit.

Russian cubestat ‘Mayak’ to launch Jul 14 will deploy a reflector that may be as bright as mag minus 10. Astronomers likely to be annoyed’, tweeted Jonathan McDowell, an astronomer at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics.

He also noted that with telescopes scanning much of the sky each night it ‘could cause problems’.

Facebook user Paulonius Woodham, who says he is a teacher and student in Perth, wrote on his Facebook; ‘Brightest star in our night sky? No just a useless piece of junk that they will send up to join all the [sic] other useless junk polluting orbit’.

The reflector is 170 square feet (16 square metres) in size and made of a thin polymer film 20 times thinner than human hair.

Each edge will be 2.7 meters (9ft) long, with a total surface area of 6 square meters (65 square feet).

The Cubesat will used also a braking system to open a parachute that will catch space debris.

But the aim of the project is to promote space research in the country, and to make science and engineering more appealing to young Russians.

A previous proposal, which involved attaching a reflective panel of plastic to a cargo ship heading to the Mir space station, was designed to see if orbiting mirrors could illuminate cities or other parts of Earth by reflecting sunlight.

The idea was that the mirrors could extend daylight hours for farmers, for example, reports Ars Technica.

‘We are sending a spacecraft into orbit that will be the brightest star in the sky, visible from any point on our planet,’ project leader Alexander Shaenko, head of the modern cosmonautics course at Moscow State University of Mechanical Engineering.

‘We want to show that space exploration is something exciting and interesting, but most importantly that today it is accessible to everybody who is interested.’

Students from the university are also taking part in the crowdfunded project to launch the orbital spacecraft.”

Considering that this is the test model and that some of the scientists who’ve delved into the project think that it could ruin the night sky, maybe the Russians should have consulted with some other nations before they just decided to go rogue and do whatever they wanted. And the fact that it might interfere with satellite images I’m sure won’t be used against our military at all.

This project was supposed to help combat space junk, but it kind of sounds like if space junk was the problem, they’re just adding their own piece.

BREAKING! Melania Horrifically Attacked – She Needs Your Support NOW!

Published

on

As the First Lady, Melania Trump has been heartlessly and viciously attacked just for being her husband’s wife. As has Barron for being the son of President Trump. Families are off limits but clearly, the liberal press does not understand this notion or idea. This latest news development that was released is nothing more than a terrible attack against her character as well as her husband in an attempt to fracture the Trump marriage

One news outlet alleges,

United States President Donald Trump, seven months before an alleged rendezvous with porn star Stormy Daniels, reportedly told radio host Howard Stern that he would give his then pregnant wife, Melania, a week to lose the baby weight.

According to the Washington Post, Trump during an appearance on Stern’s show on Dec 7, 2005 told him, “You know, Howard, she’s got the kind of a body and makeup where, about one day after the baby, it’s going to be the same as it was before.” In response to this, Stern quizzed Trump, asking “You’re giving her one day?”

One or two,” Trump replied. Moments later, the future president reconsidered, “I think I’ll give her a week,” he stated, “No, I’ll give her a week.” At the time of the interview, Melania Trump was five months pregnant with her first child, Trump’s fifth. Barron Trump was born March 20, 2006, the report said.

This happened around the same time adult film actress, Stormy Daniels, in an In Touch magazine interview conducted in 2011, alleged that she had sex with Trump in July of 2006 at a golf tournament in Nevada. In Touch magazine printed its full 2011 interview with Daniels on Friday.

Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, became the center of attention last week when allegations of an affair between Trump and Daniels surfaced in a Wall Street Journal article.

Last week, The Wall Street Journal reported that a Trump lawyer had arranged a $130,000 payment to Clifford in October 2016 to keep quiet about their relationship.
Both Clifford and Trump’s legal team have since denied the affair and the payment.”

Clearly, people don’t understand the difference between a facetious joke and seriousness. Howard Stern’s show is meant to be provocative and exaggerated and that is exactly what he got when the then real estate mogul sat down with him.

The Washington Post reported,

The White House did not respond to a request for comment. Speaking generally about his appearances on Stern’s show, Trump told The Washington Post in April 2016: “I never anticipated running for office or being a politician, so I could have fun with Howard on the radio, and everyone would love it. People do love it. I could say whatever I wanted when I was an entrepreneur, a business guy.”

Trump also said in the 2005 interview that he had seen “beautiful women that for the rest of their lives have become [a] horror” after giving birth. “You know, they gain like 250 pounds,” he told Stern. “It’s like a disaster.”

At the time of the interview, Melania Trump was five months pregnant with her first child, Trump’s fifth. Barron Trump was born March 20, 2006. Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, told In Touch magazine that she had sex with Trump in July 2006 at a golf tournament in Nevada. The In Touch interview was conducted in 2011 but published for the first time this week.

Trump denies the affair with Daniels. And Daniels denies a Wall Street Journal report that she accepted $130,000 from Trump attorney Michael Cohen to keep quiet during the 2016 presidential election. Trump’s comments to Stern fit a pattern of public remarks and alleged behavior during and after Melania’s pregnancy. The infamous “Access Hollywood” video, in which Trump boasted about groping and kissing women without their consent, was recorded in September 2005, when Melania was about two months along.

Celebrity journalist Natasha Stoynoff claims that Trump pressed her against a wall and forcibly kissed her in December 2005, around the time of the Stern interview. At the time, Stoynoff was interviewing the Trumps at Mar-a-Lago for a People magazine feature. She wrote about the alleged encounter in October 2016.”

There is no veracity to the allegations of the President’s extramarital affairs or that he actually held Melania to task for losing her weight after a week. These are nothing but allegations and jokes made and twisted against the Trump family for the purpose of trying to humiliate them and it is nothing short of embarrassing on the part of the media.

Other stories in the past have been circulated against the First Lady which have never been proven and have zero accuracy to them. Allegations such as she was a prostitute, she is an illegal alien who didn’t come to the United States the right way, that she and the President have an arranged marriage, that she is going to divorce him while he is still in office.

The media should be held to a higher standard. Both by themselves and by those outside of their circle. Melania Trump deserves better and so does her family, instead of reporting on this nonsense reporters should be reporting on the real issues at hand such as the government shutdown.

Trump Just Obliterated Obama For What He Took From WH Because He Was Sick Of Seeing It Every Day

HE HATED THE PLACE, THIS PROVES IT!

Published

on

Our new First Lady Melania Trump released her first White House Christmas video this past Monday. It shows all the decorations which illustrate a stark difference between the Trump’s and the Obama’s Christmas at the White House celebration.

The most obvious difference between the two decorating styles is the ambiance. Melania Trump decorated the White House to look like a peaceful and magical place, very elegant and the definition of what Christmas is supposed to be. She shared the video of the display on her Instagram page.

The Christmas decorations and some scenes looked just like a true come to life winter fairytale land, something out of a book. But what is most important about this video is the nativity scene, which had been absent from the White House since Barack Hussein Obama took office in 2009.

The White House’s 2017 nativity scene

The fact that the White House once again has a nativity scene proves beyond any shadow of a doubt that President Trump did, in fact, keep his promise to bring “Christmas back” and end the so-called “Happy Holiday” movement.

 

What a difference one year can make. The Obama’s final Christmas in the White House had no mention of Jesus whatsoever. The decorations included a vast display of Lego gingerbread houses. Michelle actually hired a team of Lego builders to build a total of 56 gingerbread houses which required a total of over 200,000 Lego pieces. Because we all know nothing says “Christmas” and “Jesus” like Legos. In fact, the Obama era decorations had nothing whatsoever to do with Jesus at all.

South Dakota’s gingerbread house features Mount Rushmore and is one of the 56 one-of-a-kind Lego gingerbread houses–one for each state and territory. It took more than 200,000 Legos and 500 hours to build these decorations for the State Dining Room.

Please America, please don’t make the same mistake again. There is no way a person who has a Muslim name and upbringing should ever be President of the United States of America again. We all know the majority of Americans suffered from white guilt in 2008 and 2012, but now we are over it. And America can once again be America again!

Christmas Traditions at the White House

Nineteenth-century White House Christmas celebrations were not grand state affairs but usually simple family events. The first family decorated the house with greens and there were celebrations on the holiday.

The first White House Christmas party was held in December 1800. President and Mrs. Adams gave it for their four-year-old granddaughter Suzannah, who was living with them. The Adams invited the children of “official” Washington to the party.

One of the most elaborate children’s Christmas parties was President Andrew Jackson’s “frolic” for the children of his household in 1834. This party included games, dancing, a grand dinner, and ended with an indoor “snowball fight” with specially made cotton balls.

The first Christmas tree in the White House was placed in the second floor Yellow Oval Room (then used as a family parlor and library) in 1889 (Benjamin Harrison administration). It was decorated with candles, toys, etc. for the Harrison grandchildren.

The Cleveland Family tree decorated with red, white and blue electric light bulbs, delighted the president’s young daughters. It was placed in the second floor Oval Room of the White House in 1894.

President and Mrs. Theodore Roosevelt hosted a “carnival” during the 1903 Christmas season for 500 children including dinner, dancing, musical entertainment, souvenirs, and a special treat in the form of ice cream formed in the shape of Santa and other Christmas novelties. President Roosevelt, an avowed conservationist, did not approve of cutting trees for Christmas decorations. However, his son Archie defied the ban and smuggled in a small tree that was decorated and hidden in a closet in the upstairs sewing room.

The Taft children placed the first tree on the State floor in the Blue Room in 1909. The Wilsons continued to have a tree in the Blue Room.

President Calvin Coolidge was the first chief executive to preside over the National Christmas tree lighting ceremony on the Ellipse in 1923. Today, the Christmas Pageant of Peace, a major event held annually on the Ellipse since 1954, includes the lighting of the National Christmas Tree. This celebration respects the holiday worship of all faiths and features the appearance of the first family to light the tree and host live musical and dance performances.

First Lady Lou Henry Hoover established the custom of decorating an official tree in the White House in 1929. Since that time, the honor of trimming the Christmas tree on the state floor has belonged to our first ladies. The tree stands in the oval Blue Room, an elegant space honored as the center of holiday splendor.

In 1961, First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy began the tradition of selecting a theme for the official White House Christmas tree. She decorated a tree placed in the oval Blue Room with ornamental toys, birds and angels modeled after Petr Tchaikovsky’s “Nutcracker Suite” ballet.

In 1961 First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy began the tradition of selecting a theme for the official White House Christmas tree. That year the tree was decorated with ornamental toys, birds, angels and characters from the “Nutcracker Suite” ballet. For the American Flowers Tree in 1969, First Lady Patricia Nixon arranged for disabled workers in Florida to make velvet and satin balls featuring each states official flower.

The record for the number of trees in the White House was held for many years by the Eisenhower administration when 26 trees filled every floor of the house. That mark has been eclipsed on several occasions in recent times, including the Clinton administration’s 36 trees in the 1997 theme of “Santa’s Workshop,” and the 2008 White House Christmas decorations of the Bush administration that included 27 trees as part of a theme of “A Red, White and Blue Christmas.”

Franklin D. Roosevelt always read Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol to his family on Christmas Eve.
Beginning in 1961, in the Kennedy administration, themes have been selected for the Blue Room tree. That year was decorated with objects depicting characters and toys from the “Nutcracker Suite” ballet.
Since 1966, the National Christmas Tree Association has held a competition for the White House Blue Room tree.

Over her eight White House holiday seasons, First Lady Hillary Clinton showcased the talents of America’s artistic communities. First Lady Laura Bush varied the decorations, including the themes of “All Creatures Grand and Small in 2002” highlighting her love of animals and the importance of pets to White House history and a patriotic “A Red, White and Blue Christmas” in 2008. The theme had been inspired by letters from Americans that began arriving after September 11th suggesting the White House have a red, white and blue Christmas. First Lady Michelle Obama announced the 2010 White House Christmas theme of “Simple Gifts” and she explained, “The greatest blessings of all are the ones that don’t cost a thing: the time that we spend with our loved ones, the freedoms we enjoy as Americans and the joy we feel from reaching out to those in need.”

Please share if you are happy to say “Merry Christmas” again….

Carrie Underwood Just Dropped Sudden Announcement She Hid For Months After Bashing Trump

PEOPLE ARE PISSED!

Published

on

After centering another celebrity ego-stroking awards show around bashing President Donald Trump, country singer Carrie Underwood, who used to be America’s favorite American Idol and “girl next door,” has come out with a sudden shock announcement.

The star has been mostly out of the scene since hosting the disrespectful Annual Country Music Association Awards on Nov. 2nd in part due to a devastating and unfortunate accident she was in outside her home in Tennessee. It happened just a few days after trashing Trump on stage and was simply reported as a fall at first, until weeks later when she revealed it was a lot more than that. After announcing that she had to get 40 stitches to her face following the fall, she’s emerged one more time with a sudden announcement that’s taking her fans, supporters, and even her haters by complete surprise.

When Carrie revealed that her face required extensive stitches after the fall, she did so passively by not showing the actual damage. It was previously reported, that she said she got 40 stitches from what was initially described as practically nothing more than a stumble, but did so using a pic of her face wrapped up in a knit scarf. Of course, the selfie was stunning showing her gorgeous eyes, but not the injury everyone wondered about. Now we’re learning the final result of that injury.

It was speculated at the time of her telling of her 40 injuries that she would likely use her horrific experience in a positive way – perhaps to empower others to be confident in themselves regardless of anything that makes them different from others. We’re now seeing that the exceptional songbird is doing just that in the most incredible way and certainly coming out as a champion over her injury. We’re pretty sure that if you love Carrie, you’re going to love what she’s doing now and if didn’t like her before for her political antics, you might become her newest fan of hers if her song seems like she’s seeing the error in her ways before.

CBS Sports is still not feeling the love for Underwood who just threw some major shade on her new debut, still unimpressed by the star for a number of reasons.

Songs about sports are rarely good. For every “Heart of a Champion” by Nelly there are a million “Centuries” by Fall Out Boy. They’re contrived, boring, and safe — exactly what good music often isn’t. But if you were wondering, “hey, I wonder what Ludacris is up to” this morning, I highly doubt the first thing that came to mind is “collaborating with Carrie Underwood on a Super Bowl anthem.”

And yet, here we are. Underwood and Luda collaborated on a song called “The Champion” that released on Friday, and it… did not break the mold.

Carrie Underwood is no stranger to contrived NFL theme songs. If she’s been waiting all day for a Sunday night, she’s been waiting all year for Super Bowl Sunday night. And if she’s a Titans fan (I’m guessing here, as she’s married to the Predators’ Mike Fisher) then she can at least say this song could be about the Titans. Luda’s Falcons are still in, too, so what two people are better qualified for this song? Should Migos have had a guest verse? Probably, but it’s too late for that.

Sometimes the empowering songs you sing in the shower are the best one and not those that you think makes you look cool. CBS Sports should take note of that fact because clearly, Carrie knows what she’s doing. We’re pretty sure that her haters, including those who on the surface act to cool for a “champion” song, will be singing along when nobody’s looking. The world needs more awesome anthems like this, even if some think it’s cheesy.

However, not everyone is willing to forgive and get on board with Ms. Underwood as we’ve seen in the barrage of comments made after her Trump-trashing session on stage. Many fans bailed on her and may not be coming back no matter what.

Just as furious fans have turned every football game off, they did so to the CMAs in an immediate reaction to their insulting acts to the man they voted for and are proud of.

Opposing Views caught some of the reactions that filled the Internet as real-time ratings for the awards show began to drop from the mass exodus of offended country fans.

“Well even the #cmaawards has to open up by mocking the President,” wrote one person on Twitter. “Time to find something else to watch that won’t involve politics.”

“So very disappointing that the CMAs brought politics to the show,” said a commenter in Daily Mail’s comments section. “I won’t watch again, nor support you with my money.”

It’s disturbing that not a single awards show in the eight years Barack Obama was president ruthlessly mocked him, as almost every one of them in the past 10 months of Trump’s presidency has. There would be outrage for days if the tables were turned on this. These country stars didn’t listen to the warnings from their show association, but more importantly, they didn’t learn from the fallout of the NFL from pissed patriots and now their industry could soon pay a similar price.
